|Martin Rouleau, Singer Songwriter, Art Waves #55|
It was a game of Where is Waldo when Art Waves guest, singer/songwriter Martin Rouleau arrived at Mohawk College just as the Hamilton Music Awards were gearing up. Security could not help, since there were about 50 people in the lobby matching our description of an artsy looking guy with long hair carrying a guitar. But he found us just in time, and gave us a wonderful hour of conversation and live music, saved on this podcast just for you.

|Ruth Sutherland, Art Waves #105|
Who better to help us celebrate Robbie Burns Day than harper and Celtic singer Ruth Sutherland? Though she was fully prepared to play live for us, the weather proved a trifle cold for her harp. (It was more like Robbie Brrrrrs Day!) So she brought in her award-winning CDs instead, but she did start us off with a live a cappella rendition of MacCrimmon's Lament. So rrroll up your r's and your argyle socks and let the beautiful words and music of Ruth Sutherland warm you right through.

|Betti Sheldrick, Art Waves #49|
Betti Sheldrick has lived in various countries, but it might be fair to say that a good part of her heart remains in Mexico. Tune in to learn about Mexico's wonderful Day of the Dead celebrations, and to find out why one's skeleton should always be well dressed!

|Joe Girard, Art Waves #177|
Joe Girard is a writer, musician and singer, actor--well, simply put, he is a creator. "The Changeling" is the most difficult story in In the Wings, because it is a true story of the abuse and murder of a wife by her husband. But it is brought to incredible and compassionate life in the hands of a major talent. Hold your breath, but do listen to Art Waves #177 with Joe Girard.
